    Thanks for the quick response! I figure I'm headed to have it looked at, but didn't think about a leak. I figured it's not been messed with since it came from the mfg, it probably was normal to dissipate?? I mean it's been 8 years since it was originally charged by Ford. Thanks again for being so quick!!

Go to any automotive shop and they will be gladly to inject dye into the system and add freon, they will have you come back to check for leaks, depending on the problem, how serous it is.

Well. Assuming it is an undercharge condition, that means there is a leak. It is a closed system so low refrigerant means its leaving the system. I WOULD NOT recommend doing this yourself. The proper equipment should be used, not that garbage walmart sells. You will more than likely install either the wrong refrigerent type or amount, the wrong oil, too much oil (all of which will cause poor system operation and/or possible compressor damage). You can also not remove the air from the system without the proper equipmentn causing poor operation (none of which is cheap).

Trust me, this isn't a job for the typical DIY'er

My AC worked great until last year and then after a power steering hose leak was discovered, the ac until stopped blowing cold air. I took it and paid 75.00 to have it recharged with coolant and it worked...


My air conditioner started blowing hot air last summer. I put coolant in it and didn't run it until the beginning of summer this year (2011). All of a sudden it started working again. Sometimes it blows hot but if I keep it running full blast the coolness comes back. I don't know why this happened.

Problem with heating and air conditioning. The driver's side is blowing hot air and the passenger side is blowing cold air


Air Conditioner blows warm air
  1. Air conditioner system is discharged. Have the system evacuated, charged and leak tested by an MVAC certified technician, utilizing approved recovery/recycling equipment. Repair as necessary.
  2. Air conditioner compressor clutch not engaging. Check compressor clutch wiring, electrical connections and compressor clutch, and repair or replace as necessary.

1998 Mazda Protege air conditoner blows warm air


Chances are that if nothing over the winter poked a hole in the condensor, 1 or more of the O-rings that are at each joint / connection, has dried out therefore allowing the refrigerant to leak past the seal. Have a qualified tech check it to be sure. The cost may be a minimal 1.
